Elsy Studios Designs YES Communities Headquarters in DTC
Elsy Studios, a Denver-based full-service commercial interior design firm recently completed the design of YES Communities’ new Denver headquarters in the Denver Tech Center. The growing company’s new digs will be home to its 130 Colorado-based employees.
The 35,000-square-foot office space sits on the top floor of the newly built 5050 S. Syracuse building in the Denver Tech Center.
A provider of innovative, affordable manufactured home communities, YES Communities has created distinct and inviting neighborhoods in 18 states across the U.S. The growing company’s new headquarters will be home to its 130 Colorado-based employees.
“People do their best work when they feel inspired and empowered,” said Elsy Studios principal Cathy Loftus. “That’s why our design of YES Communities headquarters focused on understanding what their team members needed and wanted from their space. We used that to inform a design that would foster a strong sense of community and embody the positive, empowering nature of their brand. We’re grateful for the collaborative partnership we developed with YES Communities and are eager for their employees to experience the space.”
Throughout the design, Elsy Studios incorporated subtle nods to YES Communities’ core business – from ceiling baffles reminiscent of the pitch of a residential roof to a collaboration area anchored by a sculptural tree, complete with swings, that evokes one of the company’s many neighborhood playgrounds.
“I am so pleased with Elsy’s ability to implement our vision for the long-term home office for YES Communities,” said YES Communities CEO Steven Schaub. “The finished space communicates our values as a company as well as our culture.”
